A. C. Grayling – Birmingham Literature Festival
31st August, 2018
‘No constitutional system should allow a partisan group to hijack the interests of the whole: this is happening in the UK and the US as these words are being written… It is therefore a matter of urgency to return our advanced polities to their democratic roots.’ A.C. Grayling
Prompted by the EU referendum in the UK and the presidential election in the USA, A.C. Grayling investigates why the institutions of representative democracy seem unable to hold up against forces they were designed to manage, and why, crucially, it matters.
Join Professor A.C. Grayling – one of the country’s most esteemed philosophers and public intellectuals – as he discusses some of the most important issues of our time.
